CAREER COURIER TRAILER


I’ve been following the progress on this film for a while. At first, the project was mainly an autobiographical account from Kenton Hoppas about his experience as a bike messenger. Looks like the vision has gotten much bigger and now features many faces and characters from around the world. I’m really excited to see this doc.

Keep up with the progress of the film here.

Jeff over at Bike Jerks recently dug up an old video of the figure-eight velodrome used in the 1998 Alley-Cats Scramble in Canada… which inspired me to go dig up this one. So rad.

Go check out another HPR video at Bike Jerks.
